From baker to banker: I have a job!

A real job starting when I graduate next summer! A real, I have to move out and iron and hoover and pay taxes and worry about my pension kind of job, in which I have to try and use my "economic" knowledge (ha!) and do clever things (uuhhhh) kind of job! This is scary stuff. 

Like, responsibility? Woah.

So I shall try and pass on my *ahem* interview wisdom...

(skip straight to the next photo for just the bento making part)

p.s. I just showed this post to my dad in which he said 'they look kinda like monkeys'.
They are penguins. PENGUINS.

Reindeer Cupcakes

Who feels Christmassy?? Actually, let me put that another way. Who's been listening to Michael Buble's Christmas album on repeat?

I have! I have! I have!

And in keeping with last year (I made chestnut cupcakes), this year I've got reindeer cupcakes.

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town!

"On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
A santa made from plastic cheese..."

Merry December!

I thought I would start off the month with a Babybel Santa. When I was 10, I hated cheese. In fact, I would go to pizza hut, peel off the topping and eat the crust. But I did love peeling babybels. In fact, I would spend every lunchtime asking my friends (the cool ones who had packed lunches because I always had school dinners) if I could peel their babybels. I think you got a bit annoyed of me after a while (so I'm apologising! I know it's 10 years too late but I'm sorry!)

Plus, I'm going home (from Uni) on Sunday so I will be reunited with my oven very soon :) Although I have a mountain of work to do my Secret Santa got me a Christmas apron so I've got no excuse not to bake! Watch this space!


I just also wanted to let you know that Cooking Gallery is hosting a Bento contest.It's being sponsored by CasaBento (the cool people who make those cool Bento boxes that I use), so I think you should check it out - even if it's just for oogling the adorable Bento box on Cooking Gallery's competition page!

I'll be making a Christmas themed Bento soon as well. Christmas + rice = Christmarice??

(I'll have another think and get back to you.)
